that have not been passed yet. i spoke to the board of supervisors, land use clerk and anticipated that they would be pass and they were passed on december 6th by the board of supervisor and they have been introduced to the land use committee almost a month ago, it will be a month ago, 30-day rule will expire on friday and so we anticipate that it will be passed. and that these land use designs will go into place. and if this permit is not finally issued before that time, we will have to comply with all of these new policies. and i believe that there is more than enough policy in front of you already with the general plan, the housing element, all of the neighborhood plans and common sense tell us, that we are supposed to improve, maintain, or housing at all levels. it makes no sense to punish the new owners. it makes no sense to punish the newest occupants of this housing, when they turned in that they had no idea that we were going to get treated like housing and get the 10-foot set back that would be given to any housing unit. there is also other design guidelines, which i would
to justify the interim use of the site. well, this is not required below grade extraction. it facilitated the building of the cable car. however, it then returned the property to its potential realization with an entitled residential project, which at its time was slightly too large, but that is not what we're discussing here. using an sud for an interim use and then tagging on a project which by necessity of demolition for the interim use would require cu without submitting proper drawings which, one, in approving sud and approving cu are required i think is unfathomable to me. this commission spent a lot of time against some of our convictionses at the time and we approved the project with the very thoughtfully executed design which with many tucks and twists and turns, but forward a project that the neighborhood was comfortable with at large. i support the design, although there were people who asked us to hold out and not approve. after so many years, as the audience here testified, this site needed a change. why can't this project not in good faith come back to this commission as a r
was a member of the board of supervisors, all of us wondered why we hadn't done anything there and the mayor thought the same. >> if an earthquake happened, the building was uninhabitable. it sat there vacant for quite a while. the city decided to buy the building in 1999 for $2. we worked and looked at ways that we can utilize the building for an office building. to build an icon i can building that will house a lot of city departments. >> the san francisco public utilities commission has an important job. we provide clean, pristine public drinking water to 2.6 million people in the san francisco bay area from the hetch hetchy regional water system. with also generate clean renewable energy for city services like public buses, hospitals, schools, and much more. and finally, we collect and treat all the city's wastewater and stormwater making it safe enough to discharge into the san francisco bay and pacific ocean. >> in 2006 the puc was planning a record number of projects. >> the public utilities commission is a very infrastructure-rich organization. we're out there rebuilding the water sy
, and important to those of us who support a station in north beach, that is the majority of my neighbors in my opinion, it preserve the section of tunnel that's currently planned in phase ii that runs from chinatown to north beach. it's already paid for. it's a done deal. and it allows that section of tunnel to be built. and we hope to facilitate the eventual construction of a north beach station. this item allows you to support the efforts of our supervisor who has tried very hard to be responsive to the concerns of his constituents. and i hope that this item will help jump start the discussion of an eventual north beach and potentially fisherman's wharf station. i think the central subway doesn't make sense without those and i think our neighborhood needs them to continue to grow and survive in the future. so, give us a hand, if you would. let this roll forward. and i hope we're talking about a north beach station before too much longer. thank you, commissioners. >> is there any additional or further public comment? okay, seeing none, public comment is closed. commissioners? commissioner ant
torrez to join us again on stage, joaquin will be introducing the mayor and if i can ask my fellow committee members to also join us on stage. joaquin. >> thank you very much i have to say as director the mayor's oches of neighborhood services it's refreshing to have a mayor so dedicated to couldn't and it makes my job easier when our people in the community want to feel our elected efficients make our needs and it's in physical presence and i have had the great pleasure of serving under our mayor lee who i would like to make a invite to make a few remarks in honor or of arab heritage month here in san francisco. >> thank you, thank you joaquin, thank you, welcome to our orange city hall. i want to welcome everybody here this fourthth animal america arab month of separation and it's my pleasure to join us here and many of us know that we are such a lucky city, and we are lucky because people around their world make their way to fraction, find hopey until the city they know that we celebrate our diversity and find strength in the different cultures that pretend together and now
and the entitlement actions and the specifics on those. so, the request before you today is for conditional use authorization to allow development on the lot greater than 5,000 square feet, to allow a nonresidential use greater than 2000 square feet, to allow the demolition of a former movie theater, and to allow restaurant use for the type 47 abc lice license. and then the commission would also make recommendations regarding the proposed reclassification of the site from a 40 foot to a 55 foot height limit and the adoption of a special use district or sud for the site. so, the development project involves the demolition of the existing vacant feeder and the construction of a new five story over basement mixed use building containing up to 18 dwelling units, a restaurant measuring approximately 4700 square feet, and up to 27 off-street parking spaces. and as has been described, following demolition of these existing building and prior to the construction of the new building, the site will be utilized for extraction of the tunnel boring equipment associated with the central subway project. a pro
measures that allowed us to move from the initial target of lead silver to lead gold and the vision that pelly had brought to the competition to the design of the transit center. at that time, we were maintaining the cost estimated cost of construction within the original $1.89 budget through a number of valuing engineering measures both with pelly clark pelly as well as osha working as the cmgc. and we moved into natural ventilation and eliminated a glass enclosure that was to go around the perimeter of the bus boarding island. we reduced the number of skylights at the park level from five to three which opened up more program space in the park for landscape space but, through the use of tubes that the architect had proposed still bringing significant natural lighting to the bus deck level. we had refined the design of the structural system as well as the park landscaping and all of those value engineering efforts had allowed us to maintain a cost estimates within the earned base line budget and of course, in the 2008, 2009 time frame, we were looking at particularly favorable pri
. >> all of us are humbled by the virus, how systemic it's become. how do you get your hands around that? for me it's top down and bottom up. we are authority figures and what we do for our children and that's care, but we need to empower them to become the leaders they are waiting to become. this notion of youth adult partnership is esoteric in its term but on the ground how do you operationalize it, those things in the public school who are working so hard to meet the required mandates. schools are driven by mandates, academic achievement, achievement, enrollment. but the conditions in which the virus grows, if you follow the metaphor that bullying is a systemic virus, then the environment has to change so the virus cannot grow and the only way the environment changes is if youth and adults begin to speak with one voice about changing the social norms that allows it to happen. it makes sense to most of us, you have it khaifrpb the social norms. we must educate. but we must go beyond thinking more rigor will get us better achievement. we have to remember a school is a community and
sponsor as opposed to staff, okay. what if they offered him the use of one of the condos that the developer will hold, a studio, once a month for anything he wants to do there, meeting or party or whatever, no more than 20 people and he has to get permission from the sponsor and of course subject to the hoa. and then what if they offered to pay part of his personal legal expense that the sponsor had caused? would this maybe be a short conversation? i really think so because i was a federal civil servant and i would have more respect for my job and i frankly think that the director would have more respect for his and for his salary and for, you know, his position and responsibility. but when you put this in the hands of people who have -- i mean, they're private citizens. they have no accountability to the public. they don't think of it the same way. and i hear, well, we're going to support it for the right give backs. now, they didn't ask for those things but they were perfectly willing to discuss them. what they asked for originally in the court, they were saying they wo
to date when all five of us are here? >> that's correct which presumably would be the next meeting of the board. >> and the reason is solely because there are four of us here? >> that is correct. the reason is based upon due process to be heard by a appellate tribunal without all members presents constitutes a deprivation of due process. >> well, i have my own opinion of that argument, and we do have our own process here. i'm wondering what prejudice it would be to postpone for one week? what's the prejudice here? >> to the determination holders i suppose it's the prejudice -- >> it's being held up. >> the letter of determination is suspended until -- >> oh it is. i thought the last decision released. okay. i don't think the basis that you've stated is sufficient to move it another week. >> it will be noted for the record that there are only four of the five members of the board of appeals members present and again before the gong goes down to my friend from hastings has everybody who is present of the four who are present read our brief in support of the request for rehearin
and in each of the domains think of something in all of them in the last 24 hours that you had to use, that you had to activate in relationships with the co-workers or spouses and these are different life skills and there is the area of responsible decision making and comes into play when you have to figure out what to do when you have a problem, so you can probably just look at that and "oh yes, i see where the connections would be" and i would like to kind of point out because we are talking about bullying today -- one of the things i love -- i don't know if rosylyn is still in the room but she talked about a specific example. this is an example of what a teacher should be able to do if she sees something in the hallway and described this whole process and when i was listening to that i was thinking oh my gosh in every category that person would have to be very socially emotionally competent. you need the awareness to know something is going on. you need that empathy to compel you do something about t you need the management skills to approach that situation calmly and not be ove
determined that this use won't even be allowed when the new land use changes come in and perhaps they are going to change that you know just to stick it to these live, work residents that seems incredibly unfair to me. these folks really will have no choice but to try to delay the permit in order to reach that new zoning. if all benefits are going to be denied them of any kind, under the policies which are already in place, remember this special use district has been in place for a long, like five or six years now. and this has been this delay in implementation of the policies and the design guidelines around that. if all of that is going to be denied to these folks, you know, really we will have no choice but, you know, to try to get relief. and you know, for anyone to say that we are exaggerating the impacts. we have not made any outrageous claims about the impacts. but ask yourself, what kind of an impact is that? a 12 and a half foot wall flush against your deck and that is what they came up with. here is what the planning commission gave them. i mean, it is absurd. >> you do
initially there were only about 5% of us that were hispanic in the school and wouldn't be the case if 95% are hispanic and english speaking as a second language, but i think the way that we can deal with the issue is we ought to first of all start with the notion of respect for others, and respect for others can work across the line. it doesn't necessarily mean -- it doesn'tly has to deal with the culture. is how we treat one another? and i think we have to be very clear in our educational process and the communication to our people and what is acceptable behavior and what is unacceptable behavior, and i am often fearful when we try to develop a black letter law if you have all these factors and bullying and you fell outside and that works okay in the courtroom. right? as prosecutors we need clear understanding of the laws to understand whether we have a criminal violation or not, but i am fearful we maybe overly legalistic and the way we deal with on a daily basis and we need to approach this by a global perspective respecting people and understanding we have the same rights and obl
rhode island street, request for conditional use authorization. i believe commissioner moore is requesting that it be pulled off. >> [inaudible]. >> we'll place that first item under the regular calendar. moving on, commissioners, commissioners questions and matters, item 3, consideration of adoption draft minutes for january 31st, 2013. >> is there any public comment on the draft minutes? seeing none, commissioners? commissioner borden. >> approve draft minutes november -- excuse me, from january 31st. >> second. >> on the motion to adopt minutes for january 31st, commissioner antonini? >> aye. >> commissioner borden? >> aye. >> commissioner hillis? >> aye. >> commissioner moore? >> aye. >> commissioner sugaya? he aye. >>and commission president fong? >> aye. >> so moved, commissioners, that motion passes unanimously 6 to 0 and places you under item 4, commission questions and comments. >> commissioner antonini. >> thank you. a couple of things, i've been hearing these reports in the news about an impending demolition of candlestick park. about a year from now, if in fact th
and has a federal back bone and it is typically used to foster new anti-terrorism technology and someone has designed something that they think will preclude a terrorist from being successful, it is in the building for the facilities like the transit center to have the opportunity to be designated and certified as a safety act facility. we are on the bleeding edge, no. we are on the leading edge, yes. the executive director charged the design team and the consultant team to follow best practice and to make sure that this facility was designed in a way that was similar to other significant assets. these are a list of other entitis that have gone about filing for safety acts, we are not the first. but you are certainly on a list with the major players. this was a little bit more information. if you want to obtain safety act designation, there are a bunch of things that you have to do. this is a listing of the enhancements in safety and security that are expected when you are reviewed for safety act designation and certification. i will go through these in more detail. these are the investm
and esther solar for giving us this beautiful space to meet in today. is esther here? i haven't seen her. we'll thank her later. they made this space available for us. good morning, my name is me linda hague for those of you who don't know me. i was appointed by president obama a little more than two years ago to be united states attorney and it is my incredible honor to represent the president, the obama administration here in the northern district of california. welcome to the stop bullying summit. i'm a federal prosecutor so it may seem odd that here we are talking about bullying and we asked all of you to be here and i want to explain the origin of that and why this happened. you people, everybody in this room, has been involved in this issue and is doing incredible work on this issue and we were so honored to be a part of it and to meet with all of you and to speak with you about it. the origin is that as the united states attorney, the administration wants me, wants all the united states attorneys, to go out into the community. it's actually a very different role for the unite
that it would be helpful for us and kind of thinking through, what level of 17 million dollars of the supporting systems, which is extra power generation. and reserve generation and reserve lighting and reserve fuel. and what is the right level? and so i guess that i, in short i agree that for us to get, you know, i don't think that it is our role as a board to get into that level of detail but just to have a sense of are we setting this at a right level are we over shooting or under shooting, given the some what unique structure that we are talking about. >> if i could just add to that and i know that actually director ortiz and metcalf have additional thoughts as well. for me what is most helpful is getting an pdsing of what a variety of different packages would look like to make this a safe place to be and what each package would be. at 64.5, what are we looking at? at 40 million, what does that mean? i agree that none of us here are security experts and it is hard to us to gauge. i could say that the city has listed 8 do 10 million in terms of the populations san francisco, roughly about 800
't be a ground for denying the permit and using expired id is consistent as we set out in the brief with the laws in many contexts, more medicare, u.s. pass porpt. can you use a expired passport to prove id and again because it's expired doesn't mean your identity has changed. only a few san francisco business permit laws leave the entire process to the police department and even fewer call for government issued id with the permit application. those that don't require a government id include licenses for charitable solicitations, new photographer, even escorts service. >> >> and it's not ordinary commercial activity but first amendment and the u.s. supreme court held repeatedly where there are restrictions to carry out the first amendment rights should be construed and all reasonable laws are preserved with that, but there is another matter i need to bring to your attention tonight. and that is a week ago today i over nighted to this board and to the police department lawyer on the case a motion for your consideration it to provide a important new fact that arose since this appeal was filed a
expedite the processes that would otherwise take a little bit longer? and therefore, you know, use more city resources, for purposes of advancing the interest of permit holder that i believe has done some things that are unseemly. >> i understand your concern, i share those concerns as well. and you know i was surprised by what i saw at the sight today and however i feel that this is the best resolution for all parties, moving forward for the appellant and for the permit holder for the city that this is the best way to insure that we are going to get a project that will comply with the project of the planning code. >> the next thing that i wanted to mention is that if so the next meeting that we have on the calendar is the 20th and if you believe that all parties can deliver and there is not going to be any kind of a problem in delivering, you know, said documents, to each other, timely, enough time to review, the next meeting that we have is march sixth and so if you are going to undertake this ambitious time line, it would behoov you do do it so that it happens on the 20th, rather tha
automated and they use a debit card including our wheelchair customers we know who got into a vehicle, when they got into that vehicle and where they went and how much they paid for it. now we are able to track and we picked up 0 wheelchair customers or you picked up 54 wheelchair customer and now we can track that and this is one of the reasons that many in our industris that been afraid of that technology because now we are able to enforce the standards that were on the books before but no one was able to truly enforce without looking at the hand records that were produced by the driver themselves. >> what we want to do and demonstrate to our drivers and to our medallion holders is simply that, the days of simply driving and doing whatever you feel like are done. what we now want you to focus on is actually serving the public. no more coming in and say, well, it is so busy here, well it is not busy enough. now we are saying, no. now we know what you are doing. now we want you to track people. now we want you to pick them up. we know that you are sitting down at the airport all day in a ra
to use an example that might seem a little far-flung for that question. one of the things i wanted to talk about with colleagues is the write up process when they cuss you out in the classroom or the hallway. i was in chicago in may and already the strike talk was coming up and talking to some of the teacher. one of the teachers said i don't know what to do about this bullying thing because the kids are cussing me out in the hallway and all i can do is write them up. i think that's a moment i'd like us to think about in terms of empowerment of the teacher. it might be the case that the teacher doesn't feel for a lot of different reasons that she can't depend on his principal to back her up and maybe that principal their best, too. but one of the things i want us it look at in terms of treating children with dignity, which means they are worthy, two things. respect as a word is overused in schools and if i could frankly take down all of the banners of in schools that say you have to respect yourselves, i would. because i think that kids see that and they think that what we do i
the carpenters for highlighting us in the january edition of the magazine. they have a really nice article in there about the transbay project and the importance of labor in their continued support to our project over many years, thank you very much for acknowledging us and the magazine. and in addition, board members, i did sign out a letter from anvill builders as you may recall. it is a company that we awarded a contract to in november of last year for 9, 250,000, million, and they sent a letter thanking us for all of the work that we are doing regarding minority owned business and i want to thank everyone because we are doing a good job in that area. in addition, i wanted to report that last saturday, there was a very tragic incident that occurred on third street where a bicyclist was killed in a collision with a cement truck. and i know that our chair person kim has been very concerned about traffic and safety for pedestrians and bicyclists which is busy in that area understandable because we have a lot of events and on that particular day was an appreciation day and so we have asked
hurtado and darryl honda and ann lazarus is absent this evening and we have our staff joining us this evening. i am cynthia goldstein. i am the board's executive director and are joined with want dids that have cases before the board tonight. scott sanchez is here. john quan is here management of the public works. jarvis is here with taxis and municipal services and katherine markum is here from the san francisco police department department bureau. at this time if you could go over the meeting guidelines and conduct the swearing in process. >> the board requests that you turn off all phones and pagers. please carry on conversations in the hallway. the board rules of presentation are as follows. each side has even minutes to present their case and people affiliated with the parties must be in this time and members of the public have three minutes to address the board but no rebuttals. to assist the members members are asked but not required to speaker card or business card to staff when you come up to the podium. speaker cards and pens are available on the left side of t
to eradicate bullying from schools at the 2012 con conference of mayors. he is here today to address us on the vexing issue of bullying. it is my pleasure to introduce the mayor of san francisco, ed lee. . >> thank you, ann, for that wonderful introduction and i don't know where you got the ease of coming to the mayor's ofrs, there was no ease on that. ladies and gentlemen, thank you for joining together here at the presidio with all the different agencies. i see phil ginsburg, i know bill is around, others from our da office, richard caranza and others from the women's status as well and the district attorneys from the various counties, the school administrators and instructors and superintendents from other counties as well, as well as our community-based agencies that are so invaluable it all of us. this is a very important topic and it's one that our u.s. attorney, melinda hague and i helped spearhead yesterday with 800 students who came together who watch an incredible film by lee hirsch i've heard the wonderful reports from the kids, seen their laughter and their tears. we are
jurisdictions that we work with have zone limitations that affect the kind of size we use and illumination levels. we develop very specific signage packages and [speaker not understood] per the permit. they go beyond the exterior method signs we have on the building, but also talk about internal, not atm machines are included in the signage packages. the information is there for review. i'm saddened a little bit to hear such an objection to our sign quality. it is our intention to work with the community to produce signage packages. and esthetics for the bank itself, which blend in and are nice in the neighborhood. we provide a service and we want our banks to be appreciated in the community. >> commissioner antonini. >> yeah, i think zoning administrator sanchez made a good point, and that is that to restrict lighting entirely or to try to prohibit it goes against what we're trying to accomplish. a well lit building, tastefully lit, provides security in the area. there's less apt to be crime or homeless encamp there or something if a building provides good illumination. you may think the
is zoned commercial industrial use with an hz7 or 160-foot height limit. the request before you today is for the authorization of 700,000 square feet of office space pursuant to planning code sections 320 and 321. the proposed project is for the construction of a new 99 5,000 square foot office building which will consist of two campuses. each campus will feature a six-story podium connected to a 12-story building. the maximum height will be 180 feet with a top of each tower rising to 169 feet and then up to 180 feet with allowable mechanical features. there will be approximately 295,000 square feet of parking resulting in 680 independently accessible parking spaces on five floors. the entrance to these parking garages are going to be on owens street. mission bay block 40 is located within the mission bay south redevelopment area which was established in 1998. all development is outlined in the plan area documents and the design for the development document which is the zoning and design code that prescribes bulk, height, setbacks, views, parking and all other land use components. the
of issues rob and your family have dealt with in terms of using the internet safely and being aware of the harm you can do to yourself and to others by the way digital news can get around. >> assemblyman. >> thank you very much. i'm very, very heartened. this was an issue that's been in the closet for too long. i think high profile nationally now as well and we have super stars involved, lady gaga, myself, but you got to reach young people. usually peers are the best, i think, in terms of communicating things and then absolutely the parents. let's keep working, i'm only as good as the information i have and so we want to do the most effective long-lasting legislation. you know what happens sometimes, something is written in law but the attitudes don't change. so that is the human part, that is the part that should have consequences and not be ignored. otherwise the legislation really isn't doing what it's supposed to do, so thank you all very much. i really give a shout out to san francisco unified because they have been very, very on top of this issue, way ahead of the curv
decks, over which they will use and leave and on the right you see something that looks like a triangle that had to be developed in order to span the train box. that had to be subjected to modeling to see how it would respond to these various threats, including an explosive threat and in the final design phase came about as a result that have particular type of structure not being in the conceptual design. there are systems in the building that you may remember that i mentioned this earlier, a fire depression and the emergency lights when the power goes out and the emergency power and these systems called evacuation rescue and recovery, and their survivebility is critical if the building is in a crisis mode. what they did was go back and look at every single space that had a critical system in it, the building is long and this is one floor and all of those little colored dots represent a critical space. each one of those spaces therefore, in this final design phase was given additional attention, a better door, a better frame, a better wall and a better way to get in and out so it will
jurisdiction request, but hold on the -- continue the appeals that are actually properly before us today? >> we prepared to move forward with the jurisdictional request and then address the continuous with the administrator also. >> okay. let's go forward. >> that's fine. >> we can hear the jurisdictional request and depending what the outcome of that perhaps the board wants to entertain the other question. >> i apologize for not having a brief prepared for the board. the brief that was submitted by the previous counsel is a little sketchy and for the reason we were never able to accept the plans submitted to the department that was the basis of those permits. let me get over the first one which is the removal of the sheet rock or plaster inside the house. basically the second permit that's issued was one that was issued in error by the planning department because the way the plan they was finally able to see yesterday at the planning department because the permit didn't provide us with plans so we can look at it. they were going to give the approved set of plans to look at on t
are looking at this. so if a person comes to us and say, high car is out of service it has been in the shop. you know my wheelchair vehicle has been in the shop for the last two weeks, we don't issue the citation. we take it off the table because we get the repair records and say that the transmission was out and they were not able to use this vehicle. we take all of those things in consideration and it is a 6-month time period because we take into consideration that maybe you will have a slow month somewhere in that six months. we are hoping that at least half of those six months you can get it done. >> and the second question is on a monthly basis, how many complaints do you have from handicap individuals that are saying that they are not being serviced? >> you know that is hard to say, because typically the call is simply, i called. and no one responded. it is not so much of a you know like... >> do you track that information if someone calls. because generally, if i required a ramp vehicle, and i called to make an appointment or called in for service, and they declined or did not show u
's a balance between -- i mean when i hear that bullying is going down i mean all of us should rejoice because that to me is indicative of the fact of the work in communities across the country are starting to pay off, but it's going to be hard in this ark and we are in this area and people are coming forward, kids are coming forward . suicides that would have been kept forward or not reporting and we're learning thanks to rapid fire and thanks to social networking or facebook and this is a sued -- all of this the -- the volume of bullying is going to rise in proportion with i think the actual drop in occurrences so to balance that and be aware of that i think is important. >>i totally agree, and that's really to rosylyn's point about this being a very, very important moment and we need to did it right. just on the subject of suicide the surgeon general came out this week and there was a usa today story and suicide and especially among veterans right now and suicide is complex and we cannot send the message -- there is a lot of fear out there right now that bullying leads to suicide and suic
but it's the bullying that can come through the use of twitter, through the use of other social media. we did a case, again a hate crimes case involving an individual who called himself devilfish who over the internet was sending death threats to the heads of the national council of irasa to other organizations that had the audacity to october on behalf of immigrants. and we prosecuted him. you described one just now, that is not an isolated incident. you know that old addage, sticks and stones can break my bones but words can never hurt me, i categorically reject that. we have seen kids quite literally take their own lives as a result of cyber bullying and that is why i did a remarkable partnership in south florida with local law enforcement who had gone into schools talking about bullying, including cyber bullying and giving people concrete examples of things of situations they saw, it was remarkable. and that is why we will continue to do that work. so i hope today as we move forward you will understand that we are in this together with you at the department of justice. this
diversity but also celebrate the things that bind us together. ruslyn, does can urriculum need to change or is that not yet where you are. >> the federal government can't -- 10th amendment. >> change it. >> that would be federal overreach. >> well stated. >> no, but, but, so we are not funding or digging into can urriculum in that way. but you certainly have seen superintendent caranza happened about what happens with the kinds of conversations that happen with the movie bully and there are can urriculum packages being developed. i had visions, gary, to think about how if folks decided -- and we don't play in this -- but if folks decided there could be a class on this, how you teach, life skills class, right? if we try to make a one-size fits all click approach that doesn't really take people from where they are and get them to where they need to go. i have seen life skills work well and i have seen students literally filling out mcdonald's applications in their life skills class. so you can't just quickly eradicate and we can't just think about this in an isolated silo the link, fo
begins to change and it's not acceptable so we use a combination of hard power and soft power. >> jeff thank you. [applause] two to three minutes goes really fast and that was a little over, just fyi. superintendent. >> don't start the clock yet. thanks. again i want to thank everyone for being here this morning and this morning i said "welcome to a sunny day in september" and many of you didn't believe me and i want to thank you all for being here and in my comments at the beginning i spoke of the wonderful experience and having 3,000 opportunities yesterday see "bully" the movie. i spoke of all of the administrators seeing "bully" when they came back from summer break and develop their plans on their campuses here, so i would like to go deeper and talk about a couple of things and before that i appreciate what rosylyn and the previous panel said about the term "bullying" and run the risk of it meaning something generic and meaningless and the word of the day, so let's talk about what it is. it's assault. sometimes it's aggravated assault. it's kidnapping. it's coercion of hu
